1923 · The Last Indian War

Age 1

The Posey War was to be considered the final Indian War in American history. It was a minor conflict, but it involved a mass exodus of Ute and Paiute from their land around current day Bluff, Utah. The natives were led by a chief named Posey, hence the name, who took his people into the mountains to try and escape his pursuers. The war ended after a skirmish at Comb Ridge. Posey was badly wounded, and his band was taken to a prisoner-of-war camp in Blanding. When Posey's death was confirmed by the authorities, the prisoners were released and given land allotments to farm and raise livestock.
1942 · The Japanese American internment

Age 20

Caused by the tensions between the United States and the Empire of Japan, the internment of Japanese Americans caused many to be forced out of their homes and forcibly relocated into concentration camps in the western states. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans were forced into these camps in fear that some of them were spies for Japan.

Name Meaning

Hebrew: According to some authorities, the name of the apostle is derived from a Syriac word of Hebrew origin, "tham," meaning to doubt, because of his doubting, and they say he was on that account called in Greek a word meaning of 2 hearts. But the Hebrew "tham" is a twin, and the Greek name Didymus has the same meaning. Tammy, Tammie, Thomasia, Thomasina, Thomassine, Thomazine, Tamasine, Tamsen, Tamzin, Tamzine, and Tamzzin are female names from Thomas. Tomas and Tamhus are Gaelic forms. Tubby is a Cornish form of Thomas. Tamlane and Tam are Scottish forms. Tom is abbreviated from Thomas and is sometimes found as a female name. Toume is an Anglo-Norman form of Thomas.
